Ping: [PATCH] One liner to allow i786 (aka pentium4) in cygwin

A ping of this simple patch from ten days ago.  In the meantime, the
toplevel config.sub has pulled in the code to bless the 
pentium4-pc-cygwin target triple
as an alias for i786-pc-cygwin.

Note that as mentioned below either {mingw,w32api}/config.{guess,sub} 
should also
be updated to match the toplevel, or I have a really simple autoconf 
patch that will let you
delete those bogus copies and properly use the toplevel versions.

Let me know if you want to use that autoconf patch, for a cygwin 
specific patch.
